Breastfeeding Basics (Breastfeeding Part I & II)

Mother Baby

Babies are born to be breastfed and this prenatal class offers practical information and tips to get you off to a great start. Learn latching and positioning techniques, how to establish or increase an abundant milk supply, signs of success and how to avoid or treat common breastfeeding concerns.

There will be in-depth discussion about the first days of feeding, the importance of skin-to-skin contact and rooming-in at the hospital to learn and respond to your baby’s hunger cues. The main focus of this class is the early weeks and months of nursing. Pumping, milk expression and safe storage of breast milk will also be covered.

Parents leave this class feeling more confident in their ability to nourish their newborn and to make informed feeding choices. This one-time class may be taken after the 20th week of pregnancy. Your spouse or partner is encouraged to attend.
